- Earthmover Credit Union Breaks Ground on New Main Office
(Oswego, IL – 09/28/2017) –On September 28, 2017, Earthmover Credit Union broke ground on their new branch located on the adjacent lot from their current administrative main office in Oswego, IL. Earthmover Credit Union needed additional space for their growing administrative staff while also needing a branch to remain in this location to serve their members. The credit union chose to partner with La Macchia Group, a national design-build firm that specializes in financial institutions, to design and build a new branch office and repurpose the previous retail space within the administrative office into additional office space.
Earthmover Credit Union’s new branch will enhance the current high-quality member service and provide better visibility and brand recognition in the marketplace. The new branch reflects a contemporary/modern design with a new branded environment. The interior design will be an open concept layout with private meeting office surrounding the lobby. The teller line will feature all new finishes that complement the contemporary/modern design. Within the lobby, members will have a new center kiosk that will have several iPad stations to utilize additional financial resources available at the credit union. A truly unique element of the interior design is the member lounge area. Modern furniture combined with custom carpeting subtly reflect the credit union’s logo. A new drive-thru area will also be added to the new branch which will offer easy accessibility to the credit union.
“We are very excited to be breaking ground on our new branch. This new location will allow us to improve our administrative operations as well as provide our members with an improved experience during their transactions,” stated Libby Calderone, President/CEO of Earthmover Credit Union.
The new branch is expected to open in 2018.
